I’ve recently read some very insightful posts on the various online roleplaying communities that I am a member of, some of these have made me give thought to how good a job my own channel and this website do with communicating my aims to the audience, and what those aims actually.
So I sat down and thought about what the aim of this site and my Youtube channel is and I came up with the following:
To provide tips and advice for roleplayings, broadcast games showing that advice in action and highlight games that offer innovative mechanics or assistance to the GM.
Going forward I am going to make that phrase my mission statement and feature very little on my channel and this site that does not somehow help with that; luckily I seem to have been thinking about this on a subconscious level for a while, so a lot of my older stuff actually does this already.
There are also a couple of other things I like to do in the future:
- Stick to a more regular schedule of releasing videos, at the moment I’m thinking Saturday each week.
- Film a more vloggy un-edited video each Monday talking about RP stuff I’ve done during the week.
- More clearly divide the various different shows (GM Tips, RPG Bugbears, etc) that I do.
- Attempt to edit some of my actual plays to remove dead-air, shorten the videos and make them more watchable so that people can see the mechanics and running of a game in action without having to wade through so much footage.
